    However, a possible prototype for Miss Buxley, a very similar-looking "new stenographer" for General Halftrack, appeared on January 22, —a Thursday. Shipping and handling This item will ship to Germany, but the seller has not specified shipping options. They are even more appalled to find out about the possible future the author has in store for them. There are a lot of feminists around now and a lot of them work on newspapers and a number of them got their editors to drop my strip—I think about seven papers went through this—or to leave it out when Miss Buxley was in it. In Dick Tracy, if someone is shot and the strip shows blood, there are editors who will paint it out.

    Must for any collector. Resents Halftrack's constant ogling of Miss Buxley. They share an uneasy alliance that sometimes borders on genuine albeit unequal friendship. Flap wondered why Lugg was sent to the camp; Halftrack commented that she showed up after he called the Pentagon to request an overseas assignment—"I asked them to send me abroad. That was funny then. In Dick Tracy, if someone is shot and the strip shows blood, there are editors who will paint it out.

    At 15, he was a comic-strip artist for a daily metropolitan newspaper and at 18, he became chief editorial designer at Hall Bros. He is most often simply a sounding-board for the general, reacting to his superior's shenanigans instead of causing his own. The apple-polishing Fuzz is always trying to impress uninterested superiors especially Halftrackand "rub it in the noses" of his subordinates. The reasons are obvious: Beetle is a slacker, his commanding officers incompetents or brutes, and the military he serves a bureaucratic mess. Resents Halftrack's constant ogling of Miss Buxley.

Miss Buxley book

It treats America's men in uniform with disrespect.

Dark Horse Comics

But let's be frank: by the standards being applied, Mort Walker has a lot more than Miss Buxley to answer for. During the early s, the strip was dropped from the Tokyo edition of Stars and Stripes because it allegedly encouraged disrespect for officers. Most of the humor in Beetle Bailey revolves around the inept characters stationed at Camp Swampy, inspired by Camp Crowder, where Walker had once been stationed while in the Army.

Originally wore an afro hairstyle. His first cartoons were rejected, but editors started to recognize his talent and in two years he was the top-selling magazine cartoonist. Must for any collector.

Slack, hapless, lanky and freckled, Beetle's eyes are always concealed, whether by headgear or, in the rare instance of not wearing any e. Sometimes Zero serves to enrage Sarge even more than Beetle. One running gag has Sergeant Snorkel hanging helplessly to a small tree branch after having fallen off a cliff.

I tried to keep an air of innocence, as if she doesn't know what she's got. Cookie Jowls — the mess sergeant, who smokes cigarettes while preparing the mess hall's questionable menu infamous for rubbery meatballs and tough-as-rawhide steaks. He was raised in Cornpone, Nebraska. The Norwegian translation of the comic strip is shown at the bottom, to show that it was not censored in Norway.

Flap was the Afro-American lieutenant whom Mort introduced to include blacks, but not in a way that seem racially offensive. Sarge is too lovable to be a villain, however. Obese, snaggle-toothed and volatile, Sarge can be alternately short-tempered and sentimental.

A few years back, charges of sexism prompted him to put out a book featuring Miss Buxley and tone down the secretary's slinky attire.

The Best of Beetle Bailey

Thank you so much Carolyn for recommending it. Down at the syndicate they would clip them out with a razor blade.Miss Buncle's Book is wise, funny and sweet. It's the story of a middle aged lady who needs money and decided to write a book. She has no imagination, so she writes about what she knows, the people in her small, English village/5.

Jul 25,  · All day, people have been commenting in varying degrees of Miss Buxley book about the hot, hot Miss Buxley action in today’s Beetle Bailey. All I can say is: why?

The Walker oeurvre is one of the funny pages’ more stylized, and there are few less detailed or realistic looking “sexy” women in comics than General Halftrack’s oft-harassed secretary. Seriously, if this was all it took to get me.
